there are only two ways as far as I know:
This is not information that comes with the technical file / license, only in the legal document aka the contract.
Hope it helps.

That information i got it from my contract. But I want to you know how many of those licenses are being used or active.
We can find out an estimated number of users from SMC but that is not accurate.
Is there any SAS proc or function to find out the number of active SAS EG licenses out of total allocated licenses.

This may not be what you are asking, but in case it is...
Enterprise Guide (the client itself) is not a specifically licensed product. It can be installed indiscriminately. As such, there is no mechanism, from SAS, for obtaining a list of installation sites for the client. Since it is a Windows client and I'm assuming this is for a corporate work environment, it should be safe to assume you have typical IT products for Windows, such as SCCM which could be used to find all installations of Enterprise Guide within your domain.
In a server environment, it is not typical for SAS to license on a per-user basis and the burden of monitoring that you are within the terms of your contract is on you.

@FriedEgg That means if we can get a EG license on server then there is no limit on number of clients to use them. Like it can be used by as many users as we install EG on their machine and add them in SMC?
Did I spell your message correctly?

i am not sure on the licence part but i can help you in finding no. of users currently using EG or any other SAS application .if you look at the metadata server logs and search key word "APPNAME". the search result will display you various applications from where SAS is being used. be it EG,DI, eminer , VA etc. filter can be like APPNAME= enterprise guide as well.

@suchismita, yes, you are understanding what I said. Unless your contract with SAS specifically limits the number of users you can have (which would be unusual) then you are able to add as many users as you want to the SAS Metadata Server through the SAS Management Console, install SAS Enterprise Guide on all of their machines or other client terminals as you like. You should contact your SAS Account Representative if you have more questions of this nature. They should be able to easily help you understand along with knowing the specifics of your contract.
